The companies that are intending to appoint a foreign employee for any position have to obtain a work permit for such employee.
Obtaining a work permit for a foreign employee in Kazakhstan is not the easiest process. Not to mention the time (usually from 1 to 2 months) that whole process consumes. Nevertheless, we strive the make the process easier and smother for our clients. Moreover, we always try to negotiate the most acceptable local content diversification obligations for our clients.
We also may provide our employees temporary while application for a work permit is being processed or in order to keep the level of local employees in a company.
